The activity of Agromash is based on cost-accounting principles. Its statutory capital is derived from payments by the two countries on an equal basis. Income received, after deduction of fixed amounts for Agromash funds, is distributed equally between the participating parties. The Agromash board is formed of representatives from both sides, on a parity basis. Board resolutions are considered adopted upon joint agreement of the two parties. The executive organ of Agromash is the bureau, consisting of the director, deputy directors, and various specialists and technical personnel. All expenditures are supported equally by the two parties. Agromash maintains headquarters in Budapest, Hungary, with representatives in Sofia, Bulgaria. It enjoys juridical rights and operates accordingly under the laws of those countries in which it is active.

Agromash represents a new form of economic collaboration between two socialist countries; it is an example of the continued improvement in the international socialist division of labor.
